  • *March 24 is the launch date for the PC version. The game's Xbox Live Arcade launch, pricing, etc. will be announced in the near future.

    Pay attention!

  • Sorry, just wanted to know for sure.

  • We have nothing. Still, we can guess pretty well, I think...

    I don't expect the Xbox and PC versions to show up far apart, if not at the same time. And we can expect each episode to be around the $8-10 range, I'd go with 1200 MS points as the most likely guess.

    The Strong Bad episodes were $10 each, and their delay meant a PC version delay. They may have changed things due to feedback or Microsoft's set-up as opposed to Nintendo's. But I wouldn't expect a huge deviation(like two months between the PC and XBLA launch of an episode).

    1200 ms points is 15 bucks! 80 ms points = 1 dollar

    That's what I get for not double-checking my MS point conversion. I meant 800.

    So many "big" XBLA titles are leaning towards the 1200 point mark.

  • A lot are very good, actually. Castle Crashers, Braid, Portal, Penny Arcade 2, are all worth 15 dollars. R-Type Dimensions and Are you smarter than a fifth Grader? However, are not worth 15 bucks, It would be rip offs if those cost 4 dollars.

  • I'd get Are You Smarter for 4 dollars, though not a penny over 5. :D

  • Any chance we can get this information before the pre-order bonus ends for the PC version? I'd really like to know what all my options are before I lose out on one of them :(

    XBLA releases get announced the monday before release. So, Monday is when we will here. Also, according to front page, theyv'e extended the pre-order.

    Nope. We're not doing simultaneous releases this time around, so the timeframe for announcing this stuff is not really tied to the timeframe for the PC version in any way.

    When we know, we'll announce it! But right now, we don't.
